Bernard O'Hagan remembered

20 September 2001

In his photographic anthology ``Family, friends and neighbours'', Oistin MacBride writes of Bernard O Hagan's death: ``The killer, young and unmasked, fired eight shots and apparently walked out of the front gates of the college and wasn't seen by another witness. No getaway car was spotted or abandoned. No disguises or overalls dumped. No weapons ever recovered and no one ever charged with any aspect of the killing. Bernard's killer made it look easy and it probably was.'' Free article
